Overview: Château Trianon was created at the end of the 17th century by the great influential figures of Libourne and Saint-Emilion, in honour of the Royal Court and of the luxurious dwelling built in the grounds of the Versailles Palaceto, where the King of France liked so much to retire to.
In the 19th century, Trianon was a country retreat belonging to the Andrieu and Lecointre families surrounded by meadows and vines. Until 1952, only 4 hectares (not quite 10 acres) of vines were used to make wine. This was subsequently increased to 6.5 hectares (16 acres). The wine produced from this plot was already described in several wine guides at the time
Tasting Notes:Black cherries, currants and flowers with subtle hazelnuts on the nose. Medium-bodied with lovely integration of fruits and tannins on the palate and a clean finish. Focused and vivid.
Pairing: Beef stew
Points: 93, James Suckling
